Feeding Herring

These pictures are of herring we saw all over the surface one night on the edge of dark. In the first picture you can see all the bunches of herring around the boat in the distance. The second picture is a close up of the dark patches you can see in the first picture. The herring are feeding on some sort of small organisms that are up on the surface. This tends to happen right at dusk as well as during the night. In the third picture you can see a basking shark cruising around in the distance. While it looks scary and is 30 ft long, it has no teeth and is eating the same tiny organisms the herring are eating. (Click image to enlarge)
